Have you considered a career in healthcare? Since most people who wish to learn IV must possess or have some experience in phlebotomy or other healthcare related position, the IV certification course has been off limits to many. That has now changed.

The unique training arm that we supply is used especially in critical care training scenarios in hospitals across the U.S. to help train nurses and physicians in how to insert IV’s and draw blood. The student will have access to our HD professionally taped classroom videos and be able to reach out to their instructor with questions. Our instructors will also schedule a video conference call with the student so that they can demonstrate their new found skills at starting IV’s with the life size training arm. There is no clinical rotation for IV. The actual course begins when the student registers for the class. Upon registration the student will set up a username and password, after which they will have access to the entire course.  Students can expect to receive their supplies in 7-10 working days after registration.

The national study guide for taking the national exam is also included. We hope that this course will train students to go on and become professionals in the field. Students study at their own pace. The web based course can be accessed through any mobile device, such as an I Pad, Mac-Book, phone, tablet or other device. Quizzes can be taken as many times as the student likes or until they feel confident with the material. The national exam will be scheduled by the student in their city, where they will be proctored by an acceptable source as per the requirements of the national organization which they are taking their exam. Please reach out to us if you have questions regarding this course. We are excited to be offering this combination. We hope you are too.

* Please note that the practice arm does contain latex tubing which is sheathed inside the non-latex exterior.  Please note this if you have latex allergies.
